THE IMPORTANCE OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE
The scope of English Language is all – encompassing. The ability to express oneself with clarity with lucid expressions aimed at having the right impact is an important skill for success. A good communicator of ideas always has an edge
over everybody else.A person might have in- depth domain knowledge, yet lack of good communication skills proves to be major impediment. The language is taught not as a foreign language but as a seemed language that later on assumes the
status of the main official language in the work place. LSRW is the main skillet required to learn this language.
-This is important for learning not only English or any other language but for any learning. A good listener understands concepts better,be it language syntaxes,vocabulary or even Science and Economics. Listening skills
are tested with Listening Passages and putting questions This encourages a healthy competitive spirit and focus also.
Speaking is a very important skill and the one that is the best too to impress and make an impact. Listening to others and speaking one’s point of view and a way to enhance vocabulary, sentence formating and expression.
This is a skill that is one of the most important tool for success. We have class debates and presentations to help children acquire good speaking skills.
A good writer and communicator has one secret weapon, the the habit of reading. It enhances knowledge, creativity, vocabulary and expression. It makes us view things from other’s point of view and that enriches one’s
ability to present the same things in myriad ways Any good writer or communicator will vouch for it.
We have a well – stocked library. As parents,reading bedtime stories is a very effective way to ignite interest and curiosity. The mind registers the turn of speech and language. Keeping a cell phone and television free time and a
family discussion on a book or the latest world news and then pointing that out in the newspaper is a good way to awaken the spark in the young minds.
We have heard people say that the children have no time to read their text books,when will they find time to read story books? The answer is help set aside some time from their video games,television and chatting with friends
routine.Many young parents in the 70’s read the books their children read and discussed it at dinner time. Just the dinner time together without TV can work wonders. Young parents may definitely implement it.
Some books that should be in everyone’s bucket list
1. ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER BY MARK TWAIN
2. LITTLE WOMEN BY L.M.ALCOTT
3. TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE BY CHARLES LAMB AND MARY LAMB
4. THE BOY,THE MOLE,THE FOX AND THE HORSE BY CHARLIE MACKESY
5. ADVENTURES OF RUSTY BY RUSKIN BOND
6. A few pages a day is enough! Watch your child develop an analytical mind,a confident demeanor and perspective!!
Writing is the assessment of the final outcomes of all the listening,reading, studying, discussing and questioning things. The exam results cannot be as expected if the ideas are not put into words well and concepts are
not grasped well,be it any subject. Once the first three LSR are taken care of, W follows. You will be surprised to see how creative, expressive, verbose or laconic as required, your child will be We give a variety of topics for
uniting,have elaborate discussions on it before asking the children to write Let them write on their own ,we are there to take care of the errors. But please remember LSWR.W always follows LSR .Adherin to these small steps and changes
in routine can go a long way in making the children proficient in the language, an impressive speaker and exceptional writer.
